We elected to visit The Fairmont at their busiest time of the year, the holidays. It was also the most beautiful time with the Christmas decorations and the beautiful white powder snow! Although we were prepared to expect bad service, we did not expect one of its own highly rated restaurant to run out of bread and food!
We appropriately made dinner reservations 3 weeks prior our stay to The Fairmont's highly rated restaurant called The Chalet which is a fondue specialty seasonal restaurant. Unfortunately, they ran out of french bread, which is a must for cheese fondue (that's the main ingredient you dip) and the fondue was missing one of the most important ingredient (after the cheese) which is the Kirsh liquor. We had the chef add the Kirsh to our fondue but ended up having to use scraps of wheat bread to dip. When you pay over $30 per person for a cheese fondue, this was simply not acceptable.
Aside from that, all employees clearly were doing their best to make everyone's stay the best. The rooms are nicely decorated and the beds are comfortables.
